It is Tuesday – welcome to the Utah Diva’s Color Challenge. Here is our inspiration for this week:

These are nice cool colors.  I decided to use a sketch from a crafting magazine.  I had marked it some time ago.  I usually look through my magazines and fold down a corner on ideas I want to try.  And then some time later I pull the magazines out and try an idea or two.  This one was actually a June issue – so I’m not very timely with some of these ideas – but that’s ok.  Here you go – my color challenge card:

In fact there isn’t really much stamping on this card at all.  I would be more tempted to call it a Big Shot card – since that is what I used on it.  I just added the splatter stamp from French Foliage because the background looked a little plain.  The strips of card stock are cut at 1/2″ and then I embossed each color with a different Embossing Folder.  I used a little bit of Designer Series Paper and the Many Thanks Sizzlit is where the “thanks” comes from.  The flower is a Filigree brad with a rhinestone brad in the center instead of the silver one.  I doodled with a marker – the card in the magazine had real stitching on it – but I didn’t want to do that.

That’s my interpretation. Now it is your turn to play with these colors – then go to the UDI blog and add your creation to the linky section.  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
